Attention Kamaʻāina (Hawaiʻi residents)!

The Maui Ocean Center and HawaiiUSA Federal Credit Union have partnered to encourage our keiki (children) to start saving today, for tomorrow.

All current and new kamaʻāina member’s keiki complete the Maui Ocean Center’s Petroglyph Activity Passport, open up a HawaiiUSA Federal Credit Union Ocean Friend Savings Account with a $5 minimum, and Maui Ocean Center will match up to 100 new accounts with $5, for a total $10 savings deposit!

As a mahalo, HawaiiUSA Federal Credit Union will then mail you a free coupon for a Pineapple Dole Whip at Maui Ocean Center’s Reef Café.  Now that’s a saving!
